#5136 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Changing priority should be disabled for non-downloaded files

Reported by: strainu Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.72
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Add a torrent with multiple files, but only select some of them for download. You will notice that you can change the priority of all the files, including the one you don't want to download.

This is a bad idea if you want to download only the last files in a batch in the netural order, because you might inadvertently select the priority of the first file (even if unselected) instead of the priority of the first _downloaded_ file.

On the other hand, being able to toggle priority of disabled files becomes useful if you want to re-enable the file after. This way, you can set the priority of a bunch of files before enabling them. I think this benefit is greater than the uncommon use-case in this ticket.
